From the Back Cover

All just another day in Serge Storms's sun-splashed paradise!

Thanks to the growth of the Internet, America finds itself plagued by a noxious epidemic of ruthless scam artists. Where do they all come from? If you guessed 110 percent of them are spawned in Florida, you win the cigar. . . .

When a new digital scheme goes horribly awry causing innocents to die and a young woman to go missing only one person can set things right: obsessive Florida trivia buff and reluctant serial killer Serge Storms.

Aided by his perpetually addled sidekick, Coleman, and latter-day noir private eye Mahoney, Serge launches a crusade to rid his beloved state of predators and save the girl.

But Serge's mission is hampered by one pesky little detail: he's being tracked by a hit man dis-patched from his murky past. And all bets are off when Serge learns the same assassin is responsible for killing the love of his life years ago. It's not long before the two begin tracking each other around Florida in a frenzied Mobius loop.

It's a dance only one can survive it's the Tiger Shrimp Tango!"

I had not read Tim Dorsey for a number of years, but was looking for something light and funny, so sought out his latest book. I remembered him as being of the same school as Carl Hiaasen. One of us has changed a lot, but I am not sure which of us it is. I found Tiger Shrimp Tango seriously unfunny, and really rather unpleasant, with a lot of gratuitous violence and unfunny deaths. I also found many of the cultural references obscure and meaningless. I read many American novels and never have trouble picturing a scene. However, in this case, many scenes simply did not make sense to me.
Maybe this book is just for a small devoted group of Dorsey fans. I doubt whether it will resonate with a broader international market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorsey delivers again! 2 Feb. 2014
By Doc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is book 17 in the Serge Storms series. If you have not read the others, shame on you! Do so ASAP.

Regardless, this is a stand alone novel. You can read it without having read other Serge books and will only miss out a little because you will not know some of the reoccurring characters. You should read this if you want

To read how an ostrich can kill
To see how Mentos are a dangerous weapon
To see how cigars can kill
To see how a lobster can kill
To see how home made napalm can be used
To learn why Glee is a superb show
To learn why the Democrats and Republicans would both not want Jesus to run for office,
Etc. Etc. Etc.

This book is hilarious, loaded with Florida trivia, hilarious, a story of scammers defeated and,did I mention, hilarious?

Read it! Read it! Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars It is one of the better Tim Dorsey Novels 21 Feb. 2014
By Ken Floyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Of course you have to enjoy Tim Dorsey to appreciate his books. Some are better than others, but the tie In's as the Serge stories progress or regress are something to pay close attention to or you miss half the fun.
I always prepay for Tim Dorsey and then forget about the date. Then I am pleasantly surprised when I get an email stating the book has been downloaded to my Kindle.
Like I stated before, you have to be a fan to enjoy and give high marks, otherwise you're a critic and you should not be reviewing these books.
I don't know what stream of consciousness is necessary to write this stuff and I don't know how much longer he can keep it up, but let's hope for a long while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Serge! 2 Feb. 2014
By panda princess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dorsey does it again! Delivers Serge,Coleman and an excellent cast of new and old friends, enemies, bad guys, crazies and Florida. Better than all the current Florida crop of authors, Dorsey can take mayhem, drugs, sociopathy and serve up a most delicious menu of dark humor, sentiment and outright hilarity leaving you satisfied and anxious for t h e next adventure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Serge Storms rides -- and kills -- again in 'Tiger Shrimp Tango' 24 Jun. 2014
By C. A. Bridges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
“Tiger Shrimp Tango,” Tim Dorsey's 17th book about walking Florida encyclopedia and occasional serial killer Serge Storms, is about what you'd expect.

That is, it includes manic road trips in a 1978 Firebird Trans Am, despicable villains, hapless victims, a devotion to the Sunshine State and all within it that “obsession” can't even begin to describe, insane-yet-disturbingly-reasonable-sounding ranting, and methods of killing people that no sane person would ever consider but which sound kind of cool.

You know, a Serge Storms book.

Storms, unstoppable force of bipolar nature that he is, once again roams the highways and byways of Florida with his stoner sidekick Coleman, relishing the kitschy history of every little nook and cranny and dispatching anyone he feels has crossed the line of rudeness or disrespect. This time he's going after Internet scam artists who have based their nefarious -- and, sadly, all too believable -- schemes in, hey, guess which state. These organized criminals are running dating scams, robbing houses of the newly dead during their own funerals, and other unspeakable crimes. One blackmailer is prolific enough to have created an entire convention's worth of victims, which is exactly how they gather in Miami (complete with themed ID badges and souvenirs) to take him down.

With the help of ex-FDLE lawman and nearly incoherently noir Mahoney, Serge heads out to rid his beloved Florida of these con artists and rescue the daughter of one of the victims. And, oh yes, avoid the person from his past who wants to assassinate him. Along the way he finds time to stop by the Coral Castle, the Florida part of Legoland, “The Yearling” author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' farm, a painfully hip restaurant in Palm Beach, and several other notable places in the state that the author has discovered in his travels because Tim Dorsey clearly has the best job in the world.

Granted, the plot is even shakier than in previous works, partly because this time there are so many unconnected targets for Storms to gallivant after.

But face it, you don't read Dorsey books for the plot. You want Storms' attitude on life -- which is here in spades -- and his inventive methods of wholly justified homicide. This time he utilizes, among other things, Mentos, ostriches, a choose-your-own lobster tank, Cuban cigars and a gelatin mold. As well he should.

If you're a fan, you'll love it, and shame on you. If you're not a fan, you might quickly become one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serge Rules 22 Feb. 2014
By Pete S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Serge, the psychopath we learned to love, (in spite of our better judgement) by the second chapter of Dorsey's first book, continues his high speed rage trough Florida. He and Coleman, our inner stoner, deliver a Ruberg system of justice to villains ripped from current headlines. A must read for any of Serge's Disciples.
